08:48 pm: Situation normal
Today I finally got all of my medical results, and everything is apparently normal, including my cholesterol levels, which I've never had checked before so I was curious about. Well, everything...unless you count the fact that the doctor thought I should have therapy because I said I would rather spend my time enjoying my hobbies than dating. @_@ No, she wasn't kidding. She was ready to set me up with an appointment on the spot. After some discussion, she finally grudgingly admitted that as long as I wasn't lonely or depressed, then I didn't need counseling to get me to date people. Yeesh.

I made considerable progress getting my kitchen counters and tabletop cleared off. ...But then I cooked some more, so I still have my work cut out for me. The potato curry with buttermilk was quite good, and I was particularly proud of the cheddar bread.

My kumquat tree has settled into its new pot rather well. I tried eating some of the not-quite-ripe fruit that had gotten knocked off when it was delivered, and I can see how it would make good marmalade. I hope to freeze the fruit as it ripens until I have enough to make something with. I ordered a second tree from a different nursery that's a variety reported to be sweeter and better for eating raw. Now I'm contemplating putting together some kind of windbreak, since the wind can get pretty strong here, and I wouldn't want it to blow the fruit off the branches. Of course, I can always bring the tree inside, which is what I did today when it got gusty.

Ah! I'm the same way, re: hobbies v. dating. I know a few others who are too, to various extremes and various reasons, all of which are perfectly healthy. I really don't get why someone would say that's a problem if the person him/herself doesn't complain about being unhappy! It boggles my mind.

Some people just can't understand those that have a completely different set of priorities, I guess.
